Lympstone History Society

Lympstone history society holds talks, visits and exhibitions throughout the year, which are open to everyone. Talks are held most months, on Thursday evenings in the Methodist Hall, Chapel Road. Look out for our posters around the village and on our noticeboard under the railway arch, or here on the village website’s  ‘What’s On’ page.

We also nurture a growing historical archive collection of Lympstone, including documents, paintings and photographs.  In 2017 we began the production of a series of new historical booklets.  They include ‘Devon Boy, 1590’ and ‘Cooking and Eating in a Devon Village: A Historical Scrapbook’.  Details can be found on ourwebsite   publications page, including old publications such as the 2005 ‘Lympstone Story’ and the ‘Millennium Map’, all of which can be purchased at our events (or contact us at our email address).

We aim to promote history within the local community, showing that history should be educational and entertaining, and we share information we have actively researched, or have had donated to us, on Lympstone’s local and family histories.  Your membership helps us maintain these aims.

We currently operate a lifetime membership scheme, the fee for this is £10 – for details click here.  Members receive information about Lympstone History Society talks and events, and a copy of our regular newsletter.

If you wish to become a member, contact us for an application form by email at  giving your name and address, or pick up a form at one of our events.
